Located within the Black Willow II neighborhood.

Numerous large windows were incorporated to take advantage of the views and the southern exposure filling the home with natural light.

  • The sun-filled breakfast room is a great way to start the day or take your coffee into the adjoining sunroom or the 3-season room overlooking the bluestone patio, both constructed in 2011 and offer stunning views. Another option for those chilly days is the Den just off the kitchen where you can warm up by the gas fireplace.
